protections the camby put in place and move forward. there's no question that mr. snowden unleashed a much more response passionate than would have been the case if i had simply appointed this iview board to go through and sat down with congress and we had worked this thing through. it would have been less exciting . it would not have generated as much press to i actually think we would have gone to the same place.

't think mr. snowden was a patriot. as i said in my opening remarks, i called for a thorough review of our surveillance operations before mr. snowden made these leaks. >>> after canceling a planned summit, president obama described his relationship with the russian president. >> i don't have a bad relationship with mr. putin. when we have conversations, they're candid they're blunt, oftentimes constructive. >> and he addressed concerns about al qaeda and the concerns across africa. >> has been decimated. but what i also said was that al qaeda and other extremists have metastasized into regional groups that can pose significant dangers. >> well, the president defended health care reforms and had these words for republican opponents. >> i think the really interesting question is why it is that my friends and the other party have made the idea of preventing these people from getting health care their holy grail. their number one priority. >> let me bring in reporter for the "washington post" ed o'keefe and elise. good morning to you. ed, the obvious question here, which came first, edward sno
that have led to mr. snowden now being granted asylum in russia. there is now a large percentage of americans, particularly young americans, who view mr. snowden as some kind of a whistleblower when we know he betrayed his oath of office. there is some young that believe he is some kind of jason bourn. we need to ask questions, like why did mr. snowden have access to what he had access to. it couldn't have been his job. what about congressional oversight. have we had a failure there? and clearly, mr. snowden granted asylum in russia is a signal of incredibly bad relations between the united states and russia and mr. putin putting his thumb right in america's eye. >> let's talk about some of the specific reforms that president obama suggested. let's put them up on the screen. have a privacy advocate argue against government. tighten mass collection of phone records. be more transparent about surveillance. do you think those are good ideas or could they impede our ability to stop any terrorist who has means to do us harm? >> there's a careful balance here between preserving our ass

that they thought we should know. it took mr. snowden to come forward, who doesn't have immunity, and tell us. the first interview i did about this case on abc always followed by senator udall and they asked him about edward snowden. the first thing you said was, i deplore his leaks. mark udall did not have the courage to do it edward snowden did. he tried to get the content and other was something we should know, but did not come forward and say -- he tried to get the country to another or something we should know, but did not come forward and say it. do so with total protection. not like me who has been threatened, or mr. snowden who has been charged. they ought to do a lot more telling is what we should know. >> how are you being threatened? >> i've had various politicians and journalists advocate that i am violating the law, that i ought to be arrested. there's been all sorts of debate on ther with graphics screen of cnn, abc, and other places should when greenwald be prosecuted. the obama administration has embraced that makes investigative journalism a crime. i am not saying i'm being f

had some fascinating words about mr. snowden to the investigation of benghazi and his constant battle with congressional republicans, especially over health care. we will delve into all the news and get reactions from top republicans. let's begin with jessica yellin. jessica joins us from the east room where the president just wrapped up. jessica, as i said, a range of topics but his statement in the thrust of what the president seemed to want to talk about were the surveillance programs that edward snowden shined so much light on. >> reporter: he laid out a framework for more information to come from the administration in the next weeks i think with declassifying, indicating they are going to declassify some programs. today what we're learning are the broad framework that sort of allows the nsa to collect their surveillance and the legal thinking behind their justifications for the surveillance, but we're going to get a lot more detail, we're told, about exactly what the government does when they're looking through e-mails and looking through phone records, et cetera. so i think ther
, this is democracy now! >> if you look at the reports, even the disclosures that mr. snowden has put forward, all of the stories that have been written, what you're not reading about is the government actually abusing these programs. and listening in on people's phone calls or inappropriately reading people's e-mails. >> days after president obama
in his work which we know has been linked to mr. snowden. how the u.s. and the uk and europe have come together on certain issues of terrorism, we are going back to the same issue. a national security issue. was nine hours too much? maybe we should bring it down to six hours. confiscating material and not charging. we are going to the fine line between democracy and national security. >> i think we must be upfront about this. we are speaking of the uk terrorism act of 2000. i think that the person the present as far as they are concerned from the uk government or any other government. clearly some tactics of harassment. and this law, this act is vacant. at this point, at the very beginning, it is a bad law and it has been badly used for petty revenge. so let me be very clear about what is happening now. i think it is not a good thing for the uk's reputation. they say freedom of expression, human rights is very important. i don't think it will help their reputation and credibility at the end of the day. >> damien green believes that police had every right to find out what he was carryin
and in private to have mr. snowden expelled to the united states. obviously this is not a positive development. >> this move was also met by a chorus of skepticism from u.s. lawmakers, starting with chuck schumer. >> stabbed us in the back. and each day that snowden is allowed to roam free is another twist of the knife. as long as prime minister putin acts like a bully, we have only one choice -- to stand up to him and show him that bullies pay a price. >> but what is that price? the most likely immediate casualty appears to be a scheduled bilateral meeting between president obama and putin in moscow. in advance of next month's go-20 summit in st. petersburg. what about the summit itself? schumer and republican senator lindsey graham who was at the white house yesterday, say the u.s. should recommend moving it. >> senator schumer and i believe that we should ask for the summit to be moved. again, when you're hosting the g-20 in russia, that basically is a signal that everything's fine. having the venue changed i think would be an appropriate step to take. >> graham even thinks the u.s. should

its surveillance programs following the leaks from former spy agency contractor edward snowden. mr. obama was asked if today's move changed his mindset about snowden. >> is he now more a whistle- blower than he is a hacker, as you called him at one point, or somebody that shouldn't be filed charges? and should he be provided more protection? is he a patriot? >> i don't think mr. snowden was a patriot. as i said in my opening remarks, i called for a thorough review of our surveillance operations before mr. snowden made these leaks. my preference-- and i think the american people's preference-- would have been for a lawful, orderly examination of these laws; a thoughtful, fact-based debate that would then lead us to a better place, because i never made claims that all the surveillance technologies that have developed since the time some of these laws had been put in place somehow didn't require, potentially, some additional reforms. that's exactly what i called for. that somehow they got there willy, nilly, just sucking in information on everybody and doing what we please with it. th
